I have had TM now for over 3 years, and had not really reached out for support my self- except of course through my family and friends.
I put 'Transverse Myelitis' into the ?? box on Facebook. TM is rare, affecting perhaps up to 7 per million people pa. So imagine my surprise to find some active, supportive and joyful support groups - who have already helped me to feel welcome, but also not 'strange'
My sincere thanks to
Transverse Myelitis Awareness
Transverse Myelitis Society
People living with Transverse Myelitis
Apparently I am not as alone as I had thought.... Just love the internet and modern communications....
